 Advice for Pet Owners


Members of the CFSG have come together to provide clear guidance to owners on how to look after their pets during the current COVID-19 crisis. Pets are valuable family members who can provide comfort and companionship to people during this period of time when many will be self-isolating or unwell. We want to ensure advice around their care is clear and people know where to go for further up to date information on controlling the spread of COVID-19 whllst meeting their pet's welfare needs.

The following member organisations offer a range of information which may assist you or anyone working with companion animals at this time:
